Early Release Days

Summary Statement:  Early release is a calendar item event (5 per year).

Purpose of Early Release

In March 2016, the Onslow County Board of Education  voted on a calendar for the 2016-17 school year.  Included in the 2016-17 calendar  are five early release days.  These student “half days” are used for professional development for teachers and other staff members.  By setting aside these days for needed professional development, we’ve increased the number of days that teachers are in the classroom instructing children by decreasing the amount of time out of the classroom for required workshops and other training activities.

Release Time

New Bridge Middle School will release students 3 hours earlier than the standard schedule.  Our early release time for 2016-17 will be 12:20 p.m.  If your child rides a hub bus, you can adjust your time by 3 hours for afternoon bus service.
